Creative team sold on eBay for £60,100

A creative team which put themselves on eBay has been won with a winning bid of £60,100.00.

31 bids were posted for the Yorkshire creative team of Amy Jackson (art director) and Hollie Benton (copywriter), known through their consultancy Conjoined Creatives.

The two put themselves up for bid in the hope that a London creative ad agency might snap them up – at the time of writing it was still unknown whether they had been successful, or if the bid was indeed genuine.

The pair are currently on placement at 20:20 London and hoped that the stunt might persuade company Peter Riley retain them following another placement they have lined up in March.
